After upgrading to Photon, I've been noticing that stepping through code is seemingly much slower than it used to be. I particularly notice when I do a "Step Over" on a simple line of code. It takes several seconds before the green highlight appears on the next line.

What I discovered, however, is that after doing "Step Over", if I then just click on the stacktrace, at the top of the stack, it immediately updates the green highlight in the code. I can step through the code quite a bit faster by pressing F6 (step over), then immediately clicking on the stack entry, and then F6, and so on.

This is is a workaround, but it's still an annoyance.

There's nothing significant in the error log.

Is this enough information for a bug report?

Hi

Interesting. Very close to a can-I-report-it problem I've observed. Sometimes the Variables View does not refresh to display the prevailing state; very deceitful; need to trick it with another 'step'.

Seems like a thread synchronization problem.

Regards
